Volunteers play such a vital role at Breast Cancer Care WA, donating their precious time, skills and support to assist us in continuing our support of West Australians affected by breast cancer. As a volunteer you can be engaged in events, fundraising and practical support as well as office and administration tasks. You will be able to enjoy meeting new people, learning new skills, gaining work experience and most importantly, knowing that you are making a difference!
Types of volunteering
Whether you are wanting to use your skills to help the community or simply give back and feel good, we have volunteering opportunities available for individuals and corporate groups in the following areas:
Practical assistance volunteers provide hands-on help to our clients. This can involve driving someone to their medical appointments, helping them with basic home duties or just being good company and taking them out for coffee when they need a friend. Practical assistance volunteers must attend an induction, receive basic training and have a police clearance.
Events and Fundraising
Event volunteering is often the best option for those who work full time but would still like to contribute. Most events are held on weekends and the roles are fun and diverse, generally involving helping with a vartiety of tasks at large community events, and a great way to meet like-minded people. Our major fundraising events are:
If you have a particular skill or qualification that may be of assistance to Breast Cancer Care WA, and some time to donate, we would love to hear from you! Alternatively, if you love admin tasks, are an organised person and comfortable in front of a computer we are always looking for assistance in our Cottesloe based offices. This can include data entry, stock take and mail outs, and in the weeks leading up to our major events, we require teams of volunteers to assist with a large variety of general office duties.
